This quote pretty much sums things up for me. If you can’t grasp the concept, then you are either a moron, or you are mentally retarded. That’s repeating myself isn’t it? Get it?

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half get the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

The late Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931 to 2005

STIMULUS CARTOONS (PART 1)


And the Mrs. gets involved too! They’re all a bunch of friggin’ tax cheats. It leads straight to the White House. I think this is probably truth. You decide.

Tax Fraud By Michelle Obama?

Hmm…interesting if true, but consider (both) sources – Newsmax via No Quarter.

For years, the press excoriated Nancy Reagan for borrowing clothes and jewelry from designers. Yet Michelle Obama has been doing the same thing — without any outcry from the media.

Accountants say that the first lady’s practice of borrowing both clothes and jewelry raises major tax and disclosure issues, not to mention ethical questions.

“The transactions are clearly taxable,” says Richard Rampell, a Palm Beach, Fla., accountant whose clients include several of the island’s billionaires. “The designers are indirectly paying Michelle Obama to go and display their wares. And they get a huge economic value for it, just as if they were paying a model to do this. If they are paying her in this indirect way by lending her their clothes, then she is actually performing a service for the designer, and she should have to recognize as income whatever the value is of the clothes that she got.”

The left just can’t get a clue. More gun laws are NOT WHAT WE NEED MORONS!

Those that break the law, don’t give a flying F what the hell laws you pass. The only people that get hurt by more legislation are the law abiding citizens. And I really don’t give two shits in the wind about Mexico. If that cesspool just ceased to exist, it wouldn’t bother me one iota. AG Holder is a piece of crap.

NY Times: Blame the U.S. Gun Laws

*Sigh* How’s this for logic?

Drug gangs seek out guns in the United States because the gun-control laws are far tougher in Mexico. Mexican civilians must get approval from the military to buy guns and they cannot own large-caliber rifles or high-powered pistols, which are considered military weapons.

[…]

The gun laws in the United States allow the sale of multiple military-style rifles to American citizens without reporting the sales to the government, and the Mexicans search relatively few cars and trucks going south across their border.

And our new douche-bag Attorney General? He says:

The attorney general also suggested that re-instituting a U.S. ban on the sale of assault weapons would help reduce the bloodshed in Mexico, where last year 6,000 people were killed in drug-related violence.

Is Eric Holder Too Ignorant to Be Attorney General?

Sadly, competence is not a requirement for the position of Attorney General, as Obama Attorney General Eric Holder proved beyond the shadow of a doubt:

“I think closing the gun show loophole, the banning of cop-killer bullets and I also think that making the assault weapons ban permanent, would be something that would be permitted under Heller,” Holder said, referring to the Supreme Court ruling in Washington, D.C. v. Heller, which asserted the Second Amendment as an individual’s right to own a weapon.

That someone can be so uninformed and hold the position he does boggles the mind.

The “gun show loophole” is myth. It simply doesn’t exist.

According to ignorant people—and sadly, this includes our neophyte President and AG Holder—people can walk into a gun show and face an entirely different set of rules than they would elsewhere.

This is a bald-faced lie.

Whether at his storefront location or at a gun show, a gun dealer must follow the exact same federal laws, which include filling out a form 4473, checking for valid ID, and running a FBI background check.

Classic Ann Coulter. The fourth paragraph was funny as hell. Did we mark the first time a black president had picked his nose in the White House? How about the first time he scratched his ass in the oval office?

Enquiring minds, really want to know. NOT!

The Cal Ripken President

by Ann Coulter

As Obama prepared to deliver his address to Congress on Tuesday, the Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner, Fox News’ Bret Baier and Charles Krauthammer all gushed that history was being made as the first African-American president appeared before Congress.

Even Gov. Bobby Jindal, whom I suppose I should note was the first Indian-American to give the Republican response to a president’s speech, began with an encomium to the first black president. (Wasn’t Bobby great in “Slumdog Millionaire”?)

Grammar Nazi!

God help me. I love it so.

Obama and “Me”

The president’s adulators praise even his bad grammar.

It’s one thing for a supposedly combative press to fawn over a presidential candidate—and now a president. Who wants to devote precious column inches to Barack Obama’s ties to radical bomber Bill Ayers when Sarah Palin’s wardrobe demands investigation? Why shoot ordinary photographs of the president when you can portray him as a haloed Byzantine saint? But now the New York Times has gone too far: it is attempting to rewrite the history of English grammar in order to flatter the president.

After 30 days of unreal spending and stupidity on the part of Teh One, I give you this:

A Month of B.O.

By Ralph Alter

Has it been but a single B.O. Presidential moon? It’s hard to believe the sheer volume of hyperactive bumbling the Obama administration has crammed into the space of a mere 30 some days. Perhaps it’s the technological superiority of the Obamanauts that has enabled them to ratchet up the level of administrative dysfunction so thoroughly.

Recall the dismay expressed by Obie One’s staffers when they found that the White House technology apparently consisted of a few rickety abacuses and an intercom made of a series of tin cans cobbled together with string. While this primitive gear may have sufficed for the Bush administration to do their cipherin’ out by the White House cement pond, it was woefully unacceptable to the hip new Prez and his Windy City Rollers.

With their exceptional technical wizardry, the new administration was able to nominate nearly twice as many Cabinet candidates as previous Presidential administrations, sometimes several to a single post. The nomination process has been the first truly bi-partisan effort by an American president, as Obama’s selections have included both tax-payers and non-tax-payers.
